Have you ever had an oil change by Conklin in Hutchinson Kansas? You may be wondering why Conklin Convoy Motor Oil is a preference for many. It is worth mentioning that choosing an appropriate engine oil can significantly impact your vehicle’s efficiency. Buying the right products can improve performance if you know the specific requirements of your engine and understand the technical parameters. Knowing the intricacies of lubricants and oil technology can help you achieve the best possible results, whether you are responsible for a fleet of vehicles, maintain a classic or race car, or simply want to get the most out of your car engine.
First, it’s important to understand that different types of vehicles require different types of oil. Some people are skeptical about the benefits of using a high-quality oil, and it may be tempting, especially for fleets, to buy one oil and use it on different vehicles. While this eliminates the need to buy many items, it can be inefficient and expensive in the long run. Read on to discover why Conklin Convoy Motor Oil is popular with car owners.

The Step-By-Step Guide To Switching To Convoy® Engine Oil
Here are some considerations that you should make when switching to Convoy® Engine Oil;
- Before switching an engine to Convoy engine oil, you should clean the crankcase with TKO® to remove deposits and residues that may have accumulated there.
- Consider using Convoy for your next filter and oil change if the recommended intervals are less than 20,000 miles on newer vehicles.
- Before switching to Convoy, you should drive your vehicle at least 3,000 miles with engine oil and TKO, assuming it has between 20,000 and 100,000 miles on the odometer.
- For engines with at least 100,000 miles on the odometer, your TKO may need more than just an oil change. Take into account that you can only use TKO a limited number of times. When using TKO for the first time, you may notice a slight increase in oil consumption, which is normal. Burning off residue and debris will increase oil consumption. Once you have completed the Convoy Conversion, completing the TKO quest is no longer necessary.
- You should always replace the filter at each oil service.
Regular oil testing is important to protect your car. Conklin Honda Hutchinson accepts oil samples for comprehensive oil analysis. It’s important to know that an oil analysis will help extend oil change intervals and provide relevant information about your engine’s and oil’s condition, especially for family vehicles, farm equipment, and off-road vehicles.
